    Like cracking open an egg...

    This book was honest and enjoyable. It cracked open each character’s shell to reveal their soft centres and whipped them into their own very special dessert. If you want a book about real people living extraordinarily regular lives, and a happy ending to boot this is your book!

    I loved it!

    This book quietly took hold and did not let me go. An interesting premise with characters that drew me in and kept me engrossed until the last page. Charming, beautiful and bittersweet. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    Chain story inspires Authenticity!

    •”Everyone lies about their lives. What would happen if you shared the truth instead?”• The Authenticity Project is a story about chain story. It starts with the instruction to tell the truth about oneself. You can think of it as a modern fairy tale where serendipitous readers play fairy god mother/father to contributors of the Project. I usually rate a book on its overall performance but The Authenticity Project was much more of a journey than most. At the start, it seemed tangential and a little dull. I stopped and started multiple times and was sure this was shaping up to be a 2 star read - I wasn’t sure I could relate to or even like some of the characters. And then there was the writing style. This writer likes to skip temporally from one spot to the next very abruptly, in a manner that can be either annoying or quirky depending on your perspective. I’ll admit I started with the former and fought hard for the latter. But then, the characters changed. Or rather, they turned out to have more depth and soul to them than their own confessions belied. By a third of the way in, I was liking it and thinking “this will probably end up being 3 stars after all”. But even more characters were added and by their addition, the old characters also grew as well. The little club of Authenticity subjects were shaping up to have a unique and eclectic bond. Two thirds of the way through I was as convinced this was going to get 4 stars. Adjectives like “clever”, “memorable”, “thoughtful” and “heartwarming” were beginning to attach themselves to this review. So how did this book end up with a 5 star review? Well, it really is more than a great story. It’s exceptional. It turns out that I do have empathy for these people and I do like them. I feel as if I am part of the chain. This book has made me a part of the Authenticity Project and has changed me as well. I hope you will pick it up, give it a chance and become part of it too! (This book was reviewed as a NetGalley ARC.)

    Notebook left at cafe changes several lives

    What a quaint story, but beware: things are a not always as they seem! I liked the interesting plot twist with Julian. He got his comeuppance for his philandering and selfish ways, but also a second chance at life - redemption is probably a better word for this part of the story line. The narrative meandered a bit, and I wondered whether the author was playing at misdirection, like a magician, but I could also foresee the potential ending of this story right in the first few chapters, so I suppose a bit of misdirection was necessary in order to keep things interesting. I loved how new characters kept being added to the mix, and how their contribution to The Authenticity Project enriched this story. Just a really great read! I received an ARC of this novel from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
